Recipe for Lovely


When I saw this stunning kitchen done by interior designer, Tobi Fairley, featured over at House of Turquoise, I knew I had to share it with you! There are so many design aspects I'm swooning over in this space, not the least of which is this gorgeous pendant lighting. I love how Tobi has mixed elements from different styles to create one cohesive look.  Traditional looking cabinets {but painted an unexpected combo of white and turquoise}, a modern glass table mixed with traditional ceiling beams, and to top it off- beautiful and sleek, transitional chrome hardware. Recipe for lovely, don't you think?







I love the idea of covering the fridge in a darker panel door than the rest of the kitchen cabinets. And, wow, can we talk about that upholstered banquet she has going on? Fabric to die for.  The curtains are the perfect finishing tough to an already gorg room. 

What's one aspect of this room that has inspired you?
Love,

  2. The shade over the sink really caught my attention. I definitely love that idea. I also love the lights hanging from the ceiling in this room. They go perfectly in my opinion. And your right, the upholstered banquet is beautiful. What a fabulous room.

  14. And just have to add...I love how the room is balance with a few darker elements such as the espresso chair legs and refrigerator panel. It breaks it up just perfectly. :-)
